Oh those are so cute. I'm glad it all worked out and you found something you love in the colours you love. Good job!

 

Thanks for the conrats on the dress. I can't wait to pick it up. I may or may not dance around the house. When Matt isn't around that is. lol

I found my dress today!!! I really didn't think I would have that feeling about the one but I do and I couldn't be happier. We also found the bridesmaid dresses as well. I don't have a picture of the girls in it but the link is to the one on the actual Bill Levkoff site.

WOW Alley, congrats on finding the one, I love the flow of the dress! So stunning :)

Thanks Kay. I'm glad that part of it is over. I feel like I can get moving on some things now. :)

Then we will be performing a choreographed salsa dance (since we've been taking salsa lessons for the past two years) and thats when I'll change into this dress! I can't salsa in my wedding dress its too big and heavy. Are you any of you changing into a shorter, lighter dress? I don't feel as bad since I'll get to wear my wedding dress again for our catholic ceremony here the following weekend.

This is a gorgeous dress Carina. Perfect for your salsa dance.

Thanks! I love it! I am thinking of adding small straps to make sure it doesn't accidentally fall down! I am so excited that we're all getting somewhere with our plans! Its so fun!

Kay for the Guest Book banner... I finished it up with my moms help this weekend. We ended up threading twine through the burlap at the top to attach it. It was super easy... kind of made a little hole on one end using a thick needle to thread the twine through and then another on the other end of the square (we taped the end of the twine so it was easier to thread through). We went from front to back, so the majority of the twine was on the back (we did it the opposite way too, but this looked better). And then we just sprayed the squares with hair spray to harden them up a bit and to stop them from fraying... seems to have worked quite well. Let me know how yours turns out!

I know I have had it on about 3 times since I picked it up, its at my moms so anytime I am there without Troy I seem to put it on... I am sure my mom and sister are getting tired of getting me in and out of it, but I can't help it you only really get to wear it once! So I say go for it!

Hahaha I am the same. Mines actually at my house so I try it on every now and then... Although I have decided now to stop since I don't want it to look worn from trying it on too often. I gained a few lbs actually since I bought it so its a bit snug... so I am now trying to eat healthier and get more exercise in! I don't want to have to do very many alterations to it lol and I certainly DO NOT want to have to have it taken out GASP! loL!

My fits differently every time I put it on, it seems.  Small different though.  It fit best when I first tried it on, but I don't need any alterations except length and bustle.  My last fitting is Sept 14th :) :) And the bridesmaid dresses will be in Sept 14th as well, YAY!  Now to get FI and groomsmen out there and dressed, he is such a slacker! Where did your FI get there attire?  And what did they get, I'm looking for a bit of inspiration! Yes the beer drinking needs to calm down a little bit, if I stopped drinking so much of it I would drop at least 10 lbs :/ ahaha

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
